B2.1 Multiple choice cloze The environment and polar bears

My B2.1 classes need to practise for open cloze and multiple choice cloze and word formation and …. an endless list :S. I’m not really keen on using classroom time for the CTE activities (except for reading), so I’ve been looking around for some texts that I could use from some old coursebook. I’ve also been getting up to all sorts of tricks in an attempt to squeeze them into an activity that wouldn’t take up too much room because scrolling up and down a computer screen in order to find the most suitable answer, isn’t very practical, isn’t it? But I think I’ve almost managed to put together something half decent, and if it works, I’ll be posting some more. Let me know how they went during our next class, please.
